LA CROSSE, Wis. - Agriculture experts are calling the recent snow and rain refreshing.
Since the new year began, there has been a slightly above-average amount of moisture. That is a big increase from last year's drought.
Experts say it's going to be vital for our farmers and their crops this upcoming season, and it could be totally dependent on the spring rains. "If we can see some good rains once that ground thaws and the ground gets open and know that we're getting that ground revitalized with some of the moisture that's going to be there," said UW-Extension Ag Agent Steve Huntzicker.
Huntzicker says consistent rain will be very important to improve the lingering drought conditions.
